    I don't even LIKE big business (who does at this point?), but I'm not at the point where I will support someone cutting off their nose to spite their face.

    The other option that I didn't mention (which can get very ugly), is if businesses start relying on informal protection arrangements with gangs to ensure that they don't face this sort of looting; also not a really good outcome.

    Exactly and that's just old school mob racketeering.

    This is the kind of stuff that happens when radical left wing politics start taking over. The left and the right used to be about checks and balances but right now that has been put on hold and radical policies have taken over.

    I don't know if its stupidity or if they're doing it on purpose to destroy the country but if they truly wanted to help people while keeping the world safe, they would do it through education and social services so the types of people that raid stores like this are raised to not do it in the first place. Instead, they're just allowing bad people to do bad things while turning a blind eye to it and blaming it all on the system and white supremacy. They aren't fixing anything other than temporarily putting money and goods in the hands of criminals while taking them out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

    It's what happens when people are unable to think more than one step ahead.

    sorta, what he described sounds like 'actual' protection money (pay gang to protect from others). vs the "protection" rackets ( pay gang so you're protected from... the same gang).

    Jesus wept. “Looting” is now considered a racist term in cali. From msn


    Calling the events in California looting carries a racist sentiment, said Lorenzo Boyd, a professor of criminal justice and community policing at the University of New Haven and a former police officer.

    "Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something,"

    But, they were all black, so apparently, looting is the absolute correct term.

    here is the rest of the article



    What happened in California this weekend when over $1 million in luxury goods were stolen was not "looting," authorities said.

    Calling it "looting" might be racist, they said.

    Instead, what happened was "organized robbery," according to a spokesperson for the San Diego Police Department.


    "As the Bay Area grapples with a wave of seemingly organized smash and grab robberies this weekend, policing and journalism analysts are cautioning against the use of the term looting," a report said.

    In San Francisco, Louis Vuitton and Burberry stores were burglarized and lost a significant amount of their product, the report said.

    Similar incidents occurred in San Jose, Santana Row, Hayward, and Walnut Creek, with waves of people storming into stores, causing extreme losses.

    However, these events are not considered looting, according to the California Penal Code, which defines looting as "theft or burglary ... during a 'state of emergency,' 'local emergency,' or 'evacuation order' resulting from an earthquake, fire, flood, riot or other natural or manmade disaster."

    Calling the events in California looting carries a racist sentiment, said Lorenzo Boyd, a professor of criminal justice and community policing at the University of New Haven and a former police officer.

    "Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something," he said. "We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing."

    The public should also be wary of drawing a political connection between this weekend's "smash-and-grabs" and the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, Boyd said.

    "These types of massive, organized smash-and-grabs were happening before the Rittenhouse situation because it happens cyclically," he said. "It's a false equivalency. It's people trying to politicize crime."

    Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education, echoed Boyd's notion that proper media literacy is essential to address the complicated issues facing society.

    "People draw their own conclusions if the terminologies that you use are tethered to people's understanding of how they have been used in the past," he said.

    It makes plenty of sense. Doesn't matter who does it.

    You cant steal and then cry when someone steals from you. You live in America. Your ancestors stole this land. It comes back to you.


    Yall on the right act like you fw the bible? What goes around comes around.
